A few things:
I ordered the Kawasaki engine guards and center stand. I think there are some youtube videos about installing them.
Riding it home and in the group ride, I noticed the seat is extremely painful to me. Most reviews said it was uncomfortable, but it's downright painful.
I ordered a seat concepts foam+cover, which, depending on if it arrives before the Kawi parts, will be my first real "mod".
Other suggestions I heard are 15 tooth sprocket, skid plate, some kind of luggage.
I would eventually like to ease into off roading, so maybe a radiator guard, knobbies and raising the front fender.
I chose this bike as it fit my criteria:
Easy to handle as a beginner with a short inseam.
Can do Canadian highway speeds.
Can get me into adv riding and learning to travel offroad.
As mentioned, feel free to provide any other suggestions.
